To our publishers and customers

[June 16, 2019] The site has now stopped selling patterns.

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 16 June, 2019.

We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Thank you all so very much for your enthusiastic support over the years.  It has meant an enormous amount to us.

2009-06 Sporty Tank Top

"A simple tank top with slipped stitch dart shaping, a band of contrast color separated from the main color with twisted floats," explains McElwain. "Knit in the round up to the armholes and then backs and fronts knit separately back and forth.." Very clearly written and in a vast and welcome size range, this is an unexpectedly sleek and sophisticated design. The main under-bust contrast color is delineated on both sides by the 'twisted floats', and fake seams decorate the (A-line) lower body. It's interesting, flattering, and sporty at the same time.
